Man Huang Feng Bao, Chapter 556: Wheel of Imprisonment
After a long silence, Ye Chuan finally made a decision. He put away all Evil Eyed Cow Demons and the wind chime, then advanced towards the single-planked bridge with a stone tablet where the word ‘present’ was carved.
When all was said and done, the past had already passed, no matter how brilliant the past was, that was also the matter of the past. Ye Chuan didn’t want to live forever in the past. As for the future, it was unpredictable. No one knows what would happen. Perhaps, one might be very successful, establishing a greater brilliance, or perhaps, one might lose everything and have nothing at all. Just present was the most real and also the most fascinating.
Cherish the present and live at present!
The heart of Ye Chuan was perturbed. He didn’t know what would happen after he set foot on that single-planked bridge, but he didn’t hesitate.
At that time, the long river of mist and smoke suddenly seethed violently.
Then, just before Ye Chuan set his foot on that bridge, a voice suddenly came from the mist, “Stop, don’t move!”
The mist churned and a half-moon shaped large wheel slowly rose from the midst of that strange river, emitting a dazzling golden light. Inside that large wheel, a middle-aged man was sitting cross-legged. He was none other than State Teacher Jiang Tunsheng!
“Your Excellency State Teacher, you……”
Ye Chuan was greatly surprised and stopped his steps upon seeing State Teacher Jiang Tunsheng sitting cross-legged inside the golden wheel. He couldn’t understand why Jiang Tunsheng was sitting cross-legged inside that wheel and also wondered why he suddenly warned him.
“Boy, didn’t you think that the past has already passed, the future is unpredictable, and one should cherish the present, so you decided this middle bridge?” Jiang Tunsheng asked with a hint of ridicule. His voice also seemed strange as if he was using a kind of technique to transmit his voice out of this wheel.
“Yes, everyone should cherish the present, isn’t that so?” Ye Chuan calmly admitted.
“Most of the people think that way and they will end up like me.”
Jiang Tunsheng laughed, merely, his laughter was unconvincing. It was unsightly than crying. Ye Chuan used his divine sense and could clearly sense that his vitality was slowly decreasing. Even if one was trapped in that golden wheel, the vitality would still decrease. Like this, there was only one end result, death!
Even a peak Half Sage realm expert is trapped. Being trapped here is the same as death!
The scalp of Ye Chuan tingled. He inwardly rejoiced that he didn’t set foot on the bridge in front of him. Even Jiang Tunsheng was imprisoned here, he absolutely wouldn’t have escaped.
“What, boy, finally afraid?” Jiang Tunsheng said with a smile yet not a smile. Being trapped in such a place, one could only wait for death. In such a situation, one might fall apart first before death.
“A bit, who doesn’t fear death all under heaven?”
Ye Chuan frankly said, “Your Excellency State Teacher, then how exactly can one go to the opposite side and leave this Reincarnation World?”
“Compensation, if you want this lordship to give you directions, tell me, what’s there for me?” Jiang Tunsheng asked a question in reply.
“Your Excellency State Teacher, say directly, what do you want me to do?” Ye Chuan calmly asked.
Jiang Tunsheng had appeared at the right time. He could have sit by and watch him stepping onto the bridge and similarly got imprisoned. But, he suddenly appeared and warned him, he must have a purpose. Naturally, it was also possible that he was intentionally misleading and setting him up.
“Hahaha, hahahaha……, the person fancied by Zixya, he naturally isn’t an ordinary person!”
Jiang Tunsheng roared with laughter and he looked at Ye Chuan with a hint of admiration. Then, solemnly said, “Boy, that’s right, this lordship indeed have a request, I want you to go to Heavenly Yao Sect and save Zixya who is suppressed under Heavenly Yao Peak as soon as possible after you returned to the mainland. Thereafter, never hurt her even a bit. How’s that, can you do it?”
“What, Zixia is suppressed under Heavenly Yao Peak? How is this possible?” Ye Chuan was greatly surprised and looked at Jiang Tunsheng in disbelief.
“Humph, what is impossible? Moreover, wasn’t that because of you?”
Jiang Tunsheng ferociously glared at Ye Chuan and said, “If it wasn’t for saving you, Zixia wouldn’t have thoroughly angered that crazy woman, White Haired Heavenly Empress Zhao Tianbi, and she also wouldn’t have gotten suppressed under Heavenly Yao Peak and never see the sun again! Stinking brat, you are good, leisurely fooling around girls, but have you ever thought about the days of Zixia?”
White Haired Heavenly Empress Zhao Tianbi?
The eyes of Ye Chuan flashed with pallid light. Now, he suddenly realized what had happened, no wonder, Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia never appeared again after she rushed over to Cloud Mist Sect to help. Originally, Ye Chuan had thought that she was concentrating on cultivating to become the next generation Heavenly Empress, but now, he learned that that wasn’t the case! After cultivating pair cultivating technique, Demonic Dragon Sutra, they had always stuck together. Not seeing one day was like they had separated for years. If it was not for the case of Heavenly Empress Zhao Tianbi imprisoning her, then how could Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia endure not contacting him for such a long period of time?
“Okay, no problem! Your Excellency State Teacher, at that time, I had lost consciousness at the end of the battle, so I don’t know what had happened afterward. But now, I know it, leave this matter to me. Even if you hadn’t asked me, I would have definitely gone to Heavenly Yao Sect to save Zixia. I will kill whoever dares to block me!” Ye Chuan tightly clenched his hands. Thinking about that sweet expression and affection of Heavenly Maiden Hong Zixia, he couldn’t wait to return to the mainland for a moment. “By the way, tell me, what exactly is your relation with Zixia?”
“Good, you are a man of character! As for my relation with Zixia, you don’t need to poke your nose. But, I will tell you one thing, don’t have any inordinate ambitions. After Zixia is rescued, I will no longer owe her anything, and I will no longer show you mercy. Hereafter, if you honestly just lord over Cloud Mist Mountain Range, then no-one will look to trouble you; but if you press your luck, then Daqin King and this lordship will never lift you off. At that time, don’t blame this lordship for being ruthless! Past, present and future, these three bridges, all are roads to ruin. Whichever bridge you choose, you will have a bad end. If you choose past and future, you will immediately walk into the danger; choose the present and you will be trapped here in the Wheel of Imprisonment like me. The only way to live is to directly jump over this Reincarnation River!”
Jiang Tunsheng paused for a moment and finally said the method to cross this river.
Ye Chuan was startled and instinctively shook his head, “Impossible, how is that possible? No one can jump over this river.”
After stepping into the Reincarnation Path, one’s body had gotten heavier and heavier and the sky was covered with even more powerful restriction fluctuation. Even after circulating eleven Heaven Swallowing Talismans within his body and using Remex Armguard, Ye Chuan had difficulty getting about, let alone jumping or flying. This Reincarnation River in front of his eyes, it was at least 20-30 meters wide, how could he jump over?
